  1. Yes it's pretty handy, but the desk sucks. Will build a good one soon, much larger, with better cable management.
  2. OCR: Photographers

    This thread has been sleeping for 4½ years. Great shots in it, very curious to see where you guys are at with photography now. Won't call myself a photographer, but I love technical stuff... optics included. Great hobby, butmy wallet would disagree. Anyway, some of my stuff... Product photo Urbex Waterfall (hand-held) Macro Dusk Another urbex
  3. New setup for the summer...
  4. Keith Emerson Dead at 71

    Never heard his name before, but wow what you posted WillRock, that reminded me of Final Fantasy. I imagine Nubuo was a fan of that guy ? There's a part in the song "Odyssey" by Symphony X that always reminded me of Final Fantasy [7:13 to 7:45 (and 7:36 in particular)], but could never tell if one of the guys was a VGM fan; now I think it might me something like what you posted. Will check his stuff for sure, I love the 70s vibe and prog... RIP
  5. OCR HAS RUINED MY MUSIC

    I can say that a lot of (old) remixes here have the same dance/trance drum loop tho lol.. ♪♪♪♬♬♪♪♬
  6. OCR HAS RUINED MY MUSIC

    It hasn't changed much for me in term of compo and I don't really fit the OCR mold, but the ressources here to gettricks and advices is great. Talking about gears, visions/approaches, goals and whatnot, with the people heredoes impact the music somehow. Helps you understand why and how to get better.It's a collective influence for me.
  7. I'd think it had to do with a final comp/limiter on the master and that they probably had an automation to raise the guitar volume a little bit when it was by itself so that there wouldn't have an apparent drop in volume. But I don't know ? Dan, yes and I love both sides of that; I like the innacuracy of the analog world, where you control current through a knob to get a result, and to "feel" it as you listen. But I also like the whole nerd aspect of plugins where you can break things to the microsecond, put in relation with the Bpm and frequencies. As an electrotechnician, it's like my left hand vs my right hand, we like to affect the analog world with the best precision possible... and a calculator!:) When people think I go too deep, sometimes, it remains an art, as technical as it can get. And, I by no mean can master a song the way I picture all what it involves, that's for mastering engineers. They are artists before engineers in my book. With that said, when it's hard for someone to grasp a concept, we shouldn't judge. Not everybody has the same toolbox,. Someone might have a good general idea of a concept but miss some tiny details he would only know if he studied maths or something. I have no idea about fourier analysis, for instance, so even though I can design guitar pedals, I'll have some tiny details I don't know about. Do I feel bad about it ? No way. We always learn new things, wether we want or not (it helps to want to lol).
  8. Can't help but think about capacitors,diodes, opamps andresistors; a signal and time. It's "basic" electronics even though compressor/limiters are programmed nowdays, but really I think that to have an idea of how a signal is treated in an analog context, its real physical path with the influenceof components, would help knowing the relation between the ceiling and thresholds, or set values, processedvalues, overshoot and all that manystuff we see in regulation. Won't make a tutorial, and won't claim to know it all, I'm a hobbyist musician but as far as things may appear to go deep, they're not "that much" in a relative way.
  9. Thanks. Will do. Done it quick because of the deadline + started at the last minute and I don't have much time at all, but yes, that was totally not mixed. Record/export lol
  10. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/19040508/Exutus%20-%20Double%20Dragon%20-%20Title%20%28Final%29.mp3 Done this in a day. Worth it ?
  11. I think you need to delete that thread then, anyway, never got any WIP and don't have time for it anymore ...
  12. Main difference here is that you cab get grants with that paper.
  13. How do you get over fear of failure?

    Some of the greatest discoveries came out of "failures".
  14. How do you get over fear of failure?

    I've never been scared so I can't give an answer to that but I'd say "just do it". And as that Nike slogan is used for sport, you could say writing music is like training a muscle. It is somehow; your brain. You do it, that's it. If it sounds good, it is, even if it sucks.
